By Karl Marx,Friedrich Engels,Serge L. Levitsky

From Kapital sprung the industrial and political platforms that at one time ruled part the earth and for almost a century saved the area near to struggle. Even this day, a couple of billion chinese language electorate dwell less than a regime that pronounces fealty to Marxist ideology. but this significant tome has been omitted by way of many readers annoyed via Marx’s tricky type and his preoccupation with nineteenth-century occasions of little relevance to ultra-modern reader.

Here Serge Levitsky provides a revised model of Kapital, abridged to stress the political and philosophical center of Marx’s paintings whereas trimming away a lot that's now unimportant. declaring Marx’s many misguided predictions concerning the improvement of capitalism, Levitsky's creation however argues for Kapital's relevance as a major instance of a philosophy of monetary determinism that "subordinates the issues of human freedom and human dignity to the problems of who should still personal the technique of construction and the way wealth might be distributed."

Here then is a clean and hugely readable model of a piece whose rules supplied thought for communist regimes' ideological struggle opposed to capitalism, a fight that helped to form the realm today.
